Bug#661069: installation-reports: first boot fails on HP 635 (AMD Zacate) seeing only colourful snow

Package: installation-reports
Justification: breaks the whole system
Severity: critical
Tags: d-i

Dear Maintainer,

the graphical installer works fine on this notebook. The error occurs only at 
the attempt to boot the installation. GRUB passes fine, than Linux loads and 
I'm asked for the password of the LVM. Shortly after I entered the password 
the mode switches and I see a bright (white and light colours) "snow" (a 
mosaic). The mouse cursor is visible and can be moved (its a tile of snow). 
But nothing more happens. There is no console I could switch to.

I couldn't load the common firmware packages from the (extracted) tarball 
during the installation but I chose to use non-free software. I hoped that the 
installer would fetch the needed firmware. Even in expert mode I didn't find an 
option to select this task.
